the museum of the copy/pasted identities

The McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology's Artist in Residence Program is delighted to announce Francisco González-Rosas' onsite exhibition, the museum of the copy/pasted identities. 

Following this year's theme, Our Selfies, Our Selves, the project configures a speculative archeology that links the networked body in digital platforms with the museum exhibition display as a way of interrogating otherness in today's techno-cultural context. 

González-Rosas' work is a mesmerizing amalgamation of research on colonialism's history and its legacies within self-archeology and identity. Using their body as subject, Gonzalez-Rosas operates with different media to integrate a digital narrative into the material physical space of the Centre’s Coach House.
